Quick tips from Golf Courses Charlotte
Some days you are soaring with the Eagles and other days playing like you've never been on the course before. That's golf.
You're still using the
- same clubs,
- same driver,
- same irons
and everything feels right but nothing seems to work.
On the green you're putting stance seems normal and you remember the times when the ball went straight into the hole but now it's just not happening.
You may start to wonder if putting and gambling are the same game. Is it just one big spin of the roulette wheel?
You're probably experiencing the undertow of golf -- tension.
Tension is a strange bedfellow. It can move in like a cloud and attack you when you are least expecting it. Maybe it was something at the office, at home, any number of things can cause subtle tension which can have a dramatic affect on your golf game.
Here's the good news
You get to relax and improve your game. Take a breath, relax your muscles, and your putting will improve.
Your golf game gets more difficult when you tense your muscles. The very foundation of golf excellence is simple relaxation. If you're bracing yourself or stiff with sore muscles you are going to experience difficulty in your game.
Think about the times when your puts were world-class. You can be guaranteed that those times were when you were relaxed, fluid, tension free, and on your game.
Top performance coaches teach the process of visualizing just such moments.
Start with your face and relax the muscles of your forehead and all parts of your face, ears, top of your head and neck, shoulders, back down to your buttocks ,thighs, your legs and ankles feet... really shake it off and relax and you get the feel of what it's like when you're playing your best.
You're putting game improves in direct proportion to your ability to relax. That really is good news.
